On Thursday I did pals with Caleb we did jump jam for the Kakano (juniors). We got about 20/30 kids. We did about 6/7 songs for them to dance to. we had to tell some of them off for run ning and playing tag games.They all liked it and we hope that next week they like it even more. So I hope we can get more little kids to play next time when we do it.We are hoping to double the people.

On Thursday I did my pals with Caleb we did jump jam for the Kakano (juniors). We got about 20 to 30 kids. We did about 6 to 7 songs for them to exercize to. They all liked it and we hope that next week the field is open. So I hope we can get more little kids to play next time when we do it.We are hoping to double the people if not tripple.
Use a range of multiplicative strategies when operating on whole numbers
I can apply the strategy to problem solving questions
A prisoner sits in his cell planning his escape. The prisoner is kept in by 5 laser beams, which operate along a corridor. Each laser is switched off at a specific time interval for just long enough to allow a person to walk through. The time between being switched off for each laser is shown below:
- Laser One = every 3 minutes
- Laser Two = every 2 minutes
- Laser Three = every 5 minutes
- Laser Four = every 4 minutes
- Laser Five = every 1 minutes
The guard patrols and checks the prisoner each time all the laser beams are off simultaneously. Because each laser only switches off for a short time the prisoner knows he can only get past one laser at a time. He has to get past the five lasers from 1 to 5 in order. Laser One is at the entrance of the prisoner’s cell and laser Five is at the door to the outside. He also knows that if he spends longer than 4 minutes 12 seconds in the corridor an alarm will go off.
Can the prisoner escape without the alarm in the corridor going off? Yes
If he can escape, how many minutes should he wait before passing Laser One?18 minute
How much time will he have after passing Laser Five before the guard raises the alarm?21 minutes

In ARTS this term we have been learning to:
Select and use techniques and relevant technologies to develop drama practice.
Here is a link to our online modelling book.
- During this unit of learning we:
- Described the characteristics of silent performances.
- Identified different techniques used in silent performances.
- Used these techniques in a variety of different practice situations.
- Worked in a small group to put together our own silent performance.
The most challenging part of this unit of learning was coming up with a plan because you could chose a range of things
The two things that I enjoyed the most were:
The story that my group told silently was some one was throwing a ball and then thew other person ran away with it.
Overall I think my group worked ( well, really well, not so well) together because we completed it.

WALT: I can successfully research a current event.
Here is a link to our online modelling book for this unit of learning.
The National Standard that I have been aiming for during this unit of learning is:
- Year 7/8: I can use appropriate skills and technologies to find and use a range of texts for specific purposes.
Each week we have read a short text about a current event/ topic. We then formed questions based on what we had read. After this we researched the answers to our questions and finally we gave our opinions on what we had found out.
Here is some evidence of my learning.
My Next Step is to continue to apply the reading and research skills that I have learned in a variety of other areas.
